Rik – Astrological Counsellor
Author — Lecturer — Columnist
I began to study the ancient art/science of Astrology back in 1990. Being socially-minded and communicative, I was quickly able to appreciate the profound truths an astrological understanding gives of an individual’s true nature through direct experience. I have now been a successful Astrological Counsellor for the last 20 years.
In an eventful and expansive career, my primary focus has been on the interpretation of each client’s personal birth chart. This is the bed-rock of all astrological readings. Following an up-to-90-minute consultation, which can be recorded if the client so wishes, I will produce a beautiful, coloured, hand-drawn, personal birth chart which he can send to you in scroll form or in a wooden frame.
Alongside this, I have fully developed my intuitive abilities at helping couples understand each other at a deeper level through the use of Synastry, the Astrological art of relationship compatibility. A knowledge of the elemental nature of how yourself and your partner interact, in all aspects of life, will create tolerance and understanding, leading to harmony and balance. I have hosted numerous successful Valentines Day readings for eager couples over many years.
I have given astrological talks and lectures in many countries including Canada, France, Spain, Greece and Holland. Each year during the summer I give astrological counselling to interested clients from a corner in the famous Vondelpark in Amsterdam. I have appeared at numerous ‘astrological evenings’ in various pubs and clubs around the UK. I also give regular Astrology presentations at many venues in the south of England including the famous Mystic Arts and Crafts Fair at Glastonbury. These events can also include interactive workshops and tuition with audience participation. For many years until it ceased publication I wrote a monthly Astrology column for the colour magazine of ‘Kent on Sunday’.
I have written two books. The first, “Truthscope”, deals with the essential nature of every sign in a cyclical fashion, so that each sign can be seen as the evolution from the faults and excesses of the previous sign, whilst acting as a preliminary stage for the development shown by the next sign on the zodiacal ’round’. The second and much greater volume, “The Astrology of Love”, serves as an immediately accessible bible to the modern romance. It highlights the nature of any one-2-one intimate relationship combination between the signs.
